Yankees notes

The Yankees are 6-4 on their 11-game homestand, which ends today. They are also 9-4 in their last 13 games. ...If the Yankees win today, they will be at 32 games over .500 for the first time this season. They've flirted with this mark in the past, but haven't been able to obtain it.

The Yankees' bats stayed hot in the Bronx, as a six-run first jolted them to a 10-2 win to cap their series against the Blue Jays. >> Box score

1) J.A. Happ had his shortest outing as a Yankee on Sunday, but it was enough for him to pick up yet another win. He tossed 5.1 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out eight and walking one. 

2) Happ got an early lead from the Yankees thanks to a big first inning that saw six runs come across the plate. Miguel Andujar (1-for-5, 2 RBI) continued his hot streak, driving in the first run to tie things up. And after Didi Gregorius beat out an infield single to score a run, Greg Bird launched a 386-foot grand slam to right to blow things up early.

The Yankees will have J.A. HappLuis Cessa and Masahiro Tanaka start in a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays that begins Tuesday after they placed LHP CC Sabathia on the disabled list earlier Monday afternoon.

Cessa, who last pitched on Tuesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, will start Wednesday and take Sabathia's spot in the rotation after he went on the DL with right knee inflammation.

The 26-year-old Cessa, who is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in seven minor-league starts and 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in eight major-league appearances (three starts) this season, received the nod over top prospect Justus Sheffield, who is 5-3 with a 2.16 ERA with the RailRiders and last pitched on Thursday; Chance Adams, who made his MLB debut earlier this month against the Red Sox; and Sonny Gray, who was bumped out of the rotation a couple of weeks ago.

With the franchise's youngest lineup in 48 years, the Yankees improved to 4-2 on their 10-game homestand with a 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Luis Severino, 24, struck out six batters in seven strong innings, while 23-year-old Miguel Andujar went 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI as the Yankees' starting lineup featured no players over the age of 30 for the first time since 1989.

"We've worked really hard -- long before I got here -- at building this organization from the ground up," manager Aaron Boone said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "Feel like we're in position not only to be a really good team in the short term but in the long term, and I think that's a result of that."

But the Yankees got the offense clicking in the second inning when Gary Sanchez and Todd Frazier blasted back-to-back homers. Didi Gregorius added a solo homer a frame later, while Frazier added a two-run double in the fifth. Jacoby Ellsbury would follow with an RBI double of his own.

Luis Severino gave up five runs in his shortest outing since April 7 as the New York Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-1, Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Ryan Goins hit a two-run home run off Severino in the second inning that gave Toronto a 2-0 lead, then hit a two-run sac fly when Jacoby Ellsbury crashed into the wall to make a leaping catch with runners on first and second that made it 4-1.

The Toronto Blue Jays could try to deal for New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner if they don't re-sign Jose Bautista, according to Hardball Talk's Ashley Varela.

Bautista and the Blue Jays are far off in contract negotiations, according to the Toronto Star's Richard Griffin. Bautista, 36, rejected a one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer and is seeking a four-year deal worth $100 million, according to Griffin.

If the Blue Jays cannot reach a deal with Bautista, who has been with the Blue Jays since 2008 and hit at least 35 home runs in four of the past seven seasons, then Toronto might look to check in on Gardner, for whom Yankees GM Brian Cashman has fielded inquiries.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Blue Jays have serious interest in Gardner, Varela notes, but they would be the second division rival that has reportedly been linked to Gardner. The Baltimore Orioles were linked to him in December.

The Yankees' performance over the 14 games previous to Monday's seemed to demonstrate the club had no fight left in them, which seemed ridiculous considering they were closing in on a playoff spot after a seven-game win streak. But, J.A. Happ provided a spark by "having his teammate's back," to which Severino added gasoline by retaliating in kind.

New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino was ejected after hitting Toronto's Justin Smoak with a pitch in the second inning Monday night, leading to an angry shoving match between the teams.

Both benches and bullpens emptied and several scrums broke out near home plate after Severino threw inside to Smoak with his first pitch of the inning and then hit him in the leg with his second.

There was plenty of jostling in a large mass of players, but it did not appear any punches were thrown.

The Yankees rallied for two runs in the top of the ninth to take a one-run lead, but Toronto came back with two in the bottom of the inning for a 4-3 win Sunday in Canada. Read the full AP recap on SNY.tv...


  • The Yankees avoided being shut out for the fourth game in a row when Didi Gregorius homered in the top of the seventh to tie the score at 1.
  • After Jose Bautista's RBI single in the eighth gave Toronto a 2-1 lead, the Yankees offense came to life in the ninth. Mark Teixeira and Billy Butler led off with singles, and both were replaced by pinch runners. Chase Headley moved the runners up. Mason Williams tied it with a single and Ronald Torreyes hit a sac fly to give the Yanks the lead.
  • The Yankees gave it right back in the bottom of the inning. Dellin Betances walked Melvin Upton Jr. to start the inning. Betances was replaced by Tyler Clippard, who gave a single to Kevin Pillar that moved Upton to third. Ezquiel Carrera's squeeze bunt scored Upton as Pillar advanced and then went to third and Carerra to second on Clippard's throwinng error. Josh Donaldson was intentionally walked before Clippard allowed Edwin Encarnacion's game winning single.
  • Yankees starter Michael Pineda pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing one run on three hits with seven strikeouts.

The Yankees finally got on the board after 33 straight innings of scoreless ball. The slump was not exactly eradicated, scoring three runs, which was still not to pull out a victory.

New York Yankees RHP Chad Green took a perfect game into the fifth inning and struck out a career-high 11 batters in six scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday at Yankee Stadium.

"I think sometimes when you get in those situations you try to overthrow too much; I was just trying to focus on the glove," Green said, according to the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand. "I was confident right there."
